Challenge the Pyrenees in ultra distance! Departing from the Atlantic coast, you will explore the formidable passes of the Basque country and their double digit percentages in the heart of a wild region. You will also ride in the footsteps of the Tour de France to climb the mythical passes of Aspin, Aubisque and Tourmalet.
The Basque Country (or Euskal Herria) is a territory of traditions that extends over more than 20,000 km². The French Basque Country (Labourd, Lower Navarre and Soule) represents 15% of the total area of the Basque territory but is full of vertical and legendary climbs.
In the French Basque Country, the mountain largely dominates the landscapes with the Pyrenees in its center which form the natural border between France and Spain. From deep valleys to high pastures, the topography is extremely demanding, even for climbers.
The many villages with typical architecture form human oases in the heart of a wild region where forests, woods, meadows and a very varied climate with abundant rains reign supreme.

I have just had an exceptional week which opens a new period in my life. I have the feeling of having tied in a week, bonds of a lifetime.
See you soon on another BikingMan
The possibility of being able to be a race angel and also to participate in the race is just incredible. I adored, sumptuous landscapes, golden athletes and an organization that is still just as perfect. Just one word: FAMILY
What a madness this race!
